I have lots of windows!!! BHG Two single window panels are the perfect alternative to an ordinary headboard. To get this look, find windows that measure approximately the width of your mattress. Remove the glass and install fiberboard or thin plywood over the back for safety. Cut fabric to fit each section and secure it in place with spray adhesive.
DIY Headboard with Hardware Store Clip Lamp Reading lamps. Spray paint inexpensive clip lamps and use 40 watt fluorescent bulbs made to look like incandescent.
LOVE this idea! Can't wait to find someone else's junk, and create a fabulous one of a kind Headboard! I love how the look is imperfect and has flaws and age! The best part is, when you are tired of this look, it is as simple as taking it down and creating a whole new look.....without having to buy an entire new bed! Definately going to check out Craigslist for discarded shutters!!!
